hi, when i create a new password for a user it shows up in the /etc/passwd
file as :!: and the password is filtered through /etc/security/passwd when
it is referenced. I would like to serve the password file over NIS but
when clients try to reference the '!', there is no corresponding entry in
is there a way to get rid of the "!" and just have the encrypted password
show up in the /etc/passwd file?
is there another way to go about this?
